ACTION: Notice of the availability of environmental documents prepared for OCS mineral proposals by the Gulf of Mexico OCS Region. AGENCY: BOEM, in accordance with Federal regulations that implement the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), announces the availability of NEPA-related Site-Specific Environmental Assessments (SEAs) and Findings of No Significant Impact (FONSIs). These documents were prepared during the period July 1, 2013, through September 30, 2013, for oil, gas, and mineral-related activities that were proposed in the Gulf of Mexico, and are more specifically described in the Supplementary Information Section of this notice. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Gulf of Mexico OCS Region, Attention: Public Information Office (GM 250E), 1201 Elmwood Park Boulevard, Room 250, New Orleans, Louisiana 70123– 2394, or by calling 1–800–200–GULF. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: BOEM prepares SEAs and FONSIs for certain proposals that relate to exploration, development, production, and transport of oil, gas, and mineral resources on the Federal OCS. These SEAs examine the potential environmental effects of the proposed activities and any alternatives and present BOEM conclusions regarding the significance of those effects. SEAs are used as a basis for determining whether or not approval of SUMMARY: E:\FR\FM\02DEN1.SGM 02DEN1 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 231 / Monday, December 2, 2013 / Notices the proposal constitutes a major Federal action that significantly affects the quality of the human environment in accordance with NEPA Section 102(2)(C). A FONSI is prepared in those instances where BOEM finds that approval will not result in significant effects on the quality of the human environment. The FONSI briefly presents the basis for that finding and includes a summary or copy of the SEA. 72097 This notice constitutes the public notice of availability of environmental documents required under the NEPA regulations.

OMB Control Number: 1012–0005. Bureau Form Number: Form ONRR– 4393. Abstract: The Secretary of the United States Department of the Interior is responsible for overseeing mineral resource development on Federal and Indian lands and the Outer Continental Shelf (OCS). The Secretary’s responsibility, under various laws, is to manage mineral resource production from Federal and Indian lands and the OCS, collect the royalties and other mineral revenues due, and distribute the funds collected under those laws. We have posted those laws pertaining to mineral leases on Federal and Indian lands and the OCS at http:// www.onrr.gov/Laws_R_D/ PublicLawsAMR.htm. Effective October 1, 2010, ONRR reorganized and transferred our regulations from chapter II to chapter XII in title 30 CFR, resulting in a change to our citations. You can find the information collections covered in this ICR at 30 CFR part 1202, subparts C and D, which pertain to Federal oil and gas royalties; part 1204, subpart C, which pertains to accounting and auditing relief for marginal properties; and part 1206, subparts C and D, which pertain to Federal oil and gas product valuation. I. General Information When a company or an individual enters into a lease to explore, develop, produce, and dispose of minerals from Federal or Indian lands, that company PO 00000 Frm 00040 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 72099 or individual agrees to pay the lessor a share in a value of production from the leased lands. The lessee, or designee, must report various kinds of information to the lessor relative to the disposition of the leased minerals. Such information is generally available within the records of the lessee or others involved in developing, transporting, processing, purchasing, or selling of such minerals. II. Information Collections ONRR uses the information that we collect in this ICR to ensure that lessees accurately value and appropriately pay royalties on oil and gas produced from Federal onshore and offshore leases. Please refer to the chart for all reporting requirements and associated burden hours. All data submitted is subject to subsequent audit and adjustment. A. Federal Oil and Gas Valuation Regulations The valuation regulations at 30 CFR part 1206, subparts C and D, mandate that lessees collect and/or submit information used to value their Federal oil and gas, including (1) transportation and processing allowances and (2) regulatory allowance limit information. Lessees report certain data on Form ONRR–2014, Report of Sales and Royalty Remittance (OMB Control Number 1012–0004). The information that we request is the minimum necessary to carry out our mission and places the least possible burden on respondents. If ONRR does not collect this information, both Federal and State governments may incur a loss of royalties. Transportation and Processing Regulatory Allowance Limits: Lessees may deduct the reasonable, actual costs of transportation and processing from Federal royalties. The lessees report these allowances on Form ONRR–2014. For oil and gas, regulations establish the allowable limit on transportation allowance deductions at 50 percent of the value of the oil or gas. For gas only, regulations establish the allowable limit on processing allowance deductions at 662⁄3 percent of the value of each gas plant product. Request to Exceed Regulatory Allowance Limitation, Form ONRR– 4393: Lessees may request to exceed regulatory limitations. Upon proper application from the lessee, ONRR may approve oil or gas transportation allowance in excess of 50 percent or gas processing allowance in excess of 662⁄3 percent on Federal leases. Lessees must complete and submit Form ONRR–4393, including a letter and supporting documentation, for both Federal and E:\FR\FM\02DEN1.SGM 02DEN1

DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR

Bureau of Ocean Energy Management

[MMAA104000]


Environmental Documents Prepared for Oil, Gas, and Mineral 
Operations by the Gulf of Mexico Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) Region

AGENCY: Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM), Interior.

ACTION: Notice of the availability of environmental documents prepared 
for OCS mineral proposals by the Gulf of Mexico OCS Region.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: BOEM, in accordance with Federal regulations that implement 
the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), announces the 
availability of NEPA-related Site-Specific Environmental Assessments 
(SEAs) and Findings of No Significant Impact (FONSIs). These documents 
were prepared during the period July 1, 2013, through September 30, 
2013, for oil, gas, and mineral-related activities that were proposed 
in the Gulf of Mexico, and are more specifically described in the 
Supplementary Information Section of this notice.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, 
Gulf of Mexico OCS Region, Attention: Public Information Office (GM 
250E), 1201 Elmwood Park Boulevard, Room 250, New Orleans, Louisiana 
70123-2394, or by calling 1-800-200-GULF.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: BOEM prepares SEAs and FONSIs for certain 
proposals that relate to exploration, development, production, and 
transport of oil, gas, and mineral resources on the Federal OCS. These 
SEAs examine the potential environmental effects of the proposed 
activities and any alternatives and present BOEM conclusions regarding 
the significance of those effects. SEAs are used as a basis for 
determining whether or not approval of

[[Page 72097]]

the proposal constitutes a major Federal action that significantly 
affects the quality of the human environment in accordance with NEPA 
Section 102(2)(C). A FONSI is prepared in those instances where BOEM 
finds that approval will not result in significant effects on the 
quality of the human environment. The FONSI briefly presents the basis 
for that finding and includes a summary or copy of the SEA.
    This notice constitutes the public notice of availability of 
environmental documents required under the NEPA regulations.
